comment Is it possible to detect the mental flow state with EEG?
There are research papers on neural correlates of Csíkszentmihályi's flow (but not too many). The easiest way is to search for Csikszentmihalyi EEG or Csikszentmihalyi fMRI, with much more results from the later (and some related to other states of mind related to creativity and mindfulness).

comment Do only humans spend a lot of time daydreaming (or having “stimulus-independent thoughts”)?
You claim that animals live in the present and do not daydream. Do you have any other proof for that (other than your personal opinion)? For example, I do not know what happens in the dog's mind.

You make a claim. Do you have any scientific arguments supporting it?

comment How are personality traits “encoded” in the brain?
Its two questions, could you split it? (Knowing how something is encoded does not mean that we know how to change it. For example, we know that some diseases are "encoded" in viri, but we cannot cure them.)

Plus, scholar.google.com with cognitive complexity "website design" yield in some potentially interesting results.

comment Need a definition of Cognitive Simplicity (or Complexity) that would appeal to a wide audience
This is... a complex question. If you are looking for a "number for corporate strategists" then invent anything, it won't have sense anyway. To have something which make more sense, try looking at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychology_of_art#Complexity_2. But for a website, I would look at time that it takes for a user to accomplish what they want. (It is not only about number of elements, but also - if they are put in meaningful/intuitive places.) Of course it cannot be done without measurement (but you can have some intuitions behind it).

comment Why do higher incentives lead to lower performance for non-rudimentary tasks?
@David Of course, very likely, how you frame the problem is very important (through, it is another variable).

comment How much alcohol is negative for brain function?
How this "to the amount of damage, and that every glass per week counts" is compatible with positive correlation of (moderate) alcohol consumption and intelligence? Also: Online games offer trove of brain data and cited therein The largest human cognitive performance dataset reveals insights into the effects of lifestyle factors and aging - esp Fig 2.
